San Antonio, Texas - The Alamo

The Alamo, San Antonio"target="_blank">The Alamo encompasses almost 300 years of history, from its mission roots in the 1700s, battle scars in the 1800s, and bike-in-the-basement pop culture snark in the 1900s. See how this San Antonio landmark holds up in the 2000s with an in-person visit—beyond the structures themselves, you'll see a vest worn by Davy Crockett, the Wall of History, extensive gardens, period artifacts, and more. Admission is free, and the compound is open seven days a week.
